Hannah attended NAHA 2004-2007 where she was a standout defenseman for the North American Hockey Academy Winterhawks, and played her Senior year with one of the top winningest teams in NAHA history.

Hannah graduated in 2011 with a major in Community Entrepreneurship and a double minor in Advertising and Public Communications.

Hannah began coaching in 2011 helping youth organizations in Colorado and Wyoming and working fulltime for Planet Hockey, where she traveled throughout the Summer coaching and directing power skating and skills clinics. While Hannah was in Australia, she found her true passion for coaching when she became the assistant coach for the Australian U18 team.
